Jay Electronica: Hip-Hop’s Homewrecker?
We’re not really one for gossip here, but this is just too crazy not to put up. So, Kate Goldsmith (formerly Rothschild, pictured right) is a music producer from England who married fellow multi-millionaire English bank heir and socialite Ben Goldsmith about ten years ago. Electronica has been living in London for sometime now finishing up his debut album on Roc Nation, and he soon met Kate through his many English music connections (apparently he also signed with her label, Round Table). Eventually her husband Ben noticed that she was spending a lot of time with the rapper, and this past week managed to find sexually explicit texts messages and e-mails between Kate and Electronica. Crazy, right? After Ben found out he slapped Kate, the police were called, and now he is currently filing for divorce. Last night Mr. Goldsmith confirmed the split, saying: ‘I’m pretty shell-shocked by everything. All I am thinking about now is my children.’
Still crazy to think that one of my favorite rappers out right now managed to break apart one of the wealthiest couples in the world’s marriage. Is the Illuminati involved? Probably. Check out the full story here.
